Get ready for the 21st annual Eastpoint Volunteer Fire Department Charity Rib Cookoff, set for this Saturday, March 19.
This year the Eastpoint Fire Cook Team will be smoking a half-ton of ribs, 300 pounds of pulled pork and cases of smoked chicken at the Firehouse event at 24 Sixth St. in Eastpoint. And Cooks Row will feature some of the area’s finest competition teams to see who walks away as grand champion with the $1,000 prize that goes with it.
The gate opens at 10 a.m. and admission is free. Dinners will be served starting at 10 a.m. until they are all enjoyed. Plus there’s the famous apple dumplings and ice cream and fried dragon skins.
Live entertainment on the pavilion stage features the return of Despite The Irony, along with other acts. The silent auction will be open until 1 p.m. sharp. A limited supply of rib cookoff T-shirts and hats will go fast. The Liars Contest will return this year, so all small, medium and gigantic liars are invited.
